What is the difference between their buffs?

Can only good chars be Troubadour? and evil Dirges?

Thanx for answering

Both Evil and Good can be either.

From what I've read, Troubadors buff the group more where Dirges Debuff the mob more.

I don't know how accurate that is, but it's a start.

I know Dirges get a revive spell later too, but I don't know about Troubadors.

troubadour is more of a defencive buffer, they raise the groups defence and parry and all that. dirges are more of the offencive of the 2, raising the groups damage, putting a proc on there wepon or adding to base damage. i know that dirges can rez at level 45 i think it is, and troubadours never can. there are more troubadours than dirges, but imp dirges are more fun and better for groups with 3 or more melee in them by far.

A few things dirges provide DR and PR, while troubs do AR. Dirges give the group a disease proc, troubs a mental proc.

Dirges life tap, troubs mana tap.

Dirges a rez, troubs a charm, not a good one though.

Dirges get more debuffs, while troubs get more buffs.

Both have their ups and downs, I like my dirge. The life taps help soloing though they have some stupid abilities. Why would a scout need a taunt that requires concentration, or a spell to make your target run for a few seconds. Since you can be either look at the spell lists and see what you prefer.
